Choices

"You can't see Will, and people like him, or her, pushing children ahead of him, or her, in the line that goes to the meat grinder, as these types of people choose, by their power of will, to move less powerful people ahead of them in the same line?"

Those words bring much for me to think about. You have introduced that concept before, but I had not kept it in my memory. It reminds me of http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007392
Martin Niemöller

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me."

I will have to set that concept into my mind.

"Do not allow your life to be ending by other people if the only reason for your death is for other people to have fun at your expense. Please?"

I should probably not publish these words, but I have already told Jeff I will make them shoot me. I am not going to live out a long torturous death. I will fight at the start. So I say, but then there are the children to consider. And I must also consider your very welcome words above about Still. I will reply to those later as I think them over. I have to run now to get my day started in high gear.

One last thing, it is very hard for me to give up on people…willl for example. I have the gift of mercy, so I have replied one more time and that will be it. MaxK also had some stuff to say that I replied to as well on that post.

And one more thing, I do not believe it is jealousy at all to admire our Friends in Liberty Fighter Pilots. There is a difference between those words and when one is able to determine which side of the line they are on, like you have reported, well then, all is good. And then sometimes, if we find ourselves on the wrong side of a line, well then, it is only a line that is meant to be stepped over to the side of righteousness.

Joshua 24:15 KJV
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve ; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell : but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Proverbs 16:25 KJV
There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Have a nice day, my friend. Thank you for your words on my behalf.
